The following article is satirical…
Since the Leftist mob has been able to ransack major cities and desecrate historical monuments without impediment from Democrat Mayors and Governors, I feel it is time for us conservatives to tear down monuments to Leftist political icons. I mean, it’s only fair, right?
We can’t let them have all the fun. Who wants to join me?
We can start in Seattle by tearing down a statue in the city’s Freemont Park District dedicated to the leader of the original Bolsheviks, Vladimir Lenin.
As the mob defaces and decapitates monuments and occupies blocks of the city, the statue to the socialist icon remains standing. The man responsible for the “Red Terror” in the Soviet Union has not faced the historical justice he deserves and we must erase him from history.
Here is an example of an order he gave to exterminate the Kulaks:
“(1) Hang (I mean hang publicly, so that people see it) at least 100 Kulaks, rich bastards, and known blood-suckers. (2) Publish their names (3) Seize their grain. (4) Single out the hostages.”
That was just a normal Tuesday for Lenin, who dictated many similar directives in his short reign as the supreme leader of the USSR.
So, let’s hop on board a plane to Seattle and tear that statue down. I wonder if the Mayor of Seattle will be as lenient with us as she has been with the Leftist rabble that have taken over whole sections of her city’s streets.
We can then fly out to Washington D.C. for our next stop. While the mob has defaced the Lincoln Memorial and attempted to tear down a statue to Andrew Jackson at Lafayette Park, they somehow forgot to desecrate the memorial dedicated to Franklin Roosevelt. Ah, yes, that Liberal icon who interred 120,000 Japanese Americans in camps during World War II.
According to the site History Matters, “Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066, dated February 19, 1942, gave the military broad powers to ban any citizen from a fifty- to sixty-mile-wide coastal area stretching from Washington state to California and extending inland into southern Arizona. The order also authorized transporting these citizens to assembly centers hastily set up and governed by the military in California, Arizona, Washington state, and Oregon.”
His memorial can no longer stand! All schools, streets, and public buildings named after FDR should be renamed immediately. If we’re ever to escape the evils of the past, FDR’s legacy must be abolished…and that goes for anything pertaining to the “New Deal” too.
While we’re in Washington D.C., we can make a stop by the Smithsonian Museum and shatter a bust sculpted to honor Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. After all, Sanger supported eugenics and white supremacy, and she was also on board with exterminating those with mental handicaps. She frequently spoke at KKK rallies and her message made her very popular with those audiences. Oh, and then there’s that whole “killing babies” thing, too. After all, abortions have a vastly disproportionate effect on minority communities, killing more black and brown children annually than racism ever could. In the name of progress, Sanger must be destroyed.
Last but not least, we should hop across the pond to Jolly Old England and destroy a memorial dedicated to Karl Marx. Yes, the man who gave us worldwide socialism and who called for the violent overthrow of the proletariat must be forever purged from the historical record. His ideology led to the deaths of an estimated 100 million in the 20th century alone. Surely, no one would honor him, right? Sadly, there are still people who long for his return and refer to the Communist Manifesto like a scared gospel, so we must be swift and just in working to remedy their mistake.
This isn’t an exhaustive list of Leftist statues, but it’s a start. I am sure the Democrat mayors would allow us to do to these statues what Leftists have done to American icons like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Ulysses S. Grant. After all, if they’ll approve the destruction of monuments to Lincoln and Grant—men who helped abolish slavery—then they don’t really have a leg to stand on, do they?
Something tells me that they would suddenly find new support for the police and would send them to arrest us, but we’ll never know until we try.
So, pack your suitcases, gang! We’ve got some vandalizing to do!
